May be, before temporarily disabling your account you should consider other possible options. If you are just annoyed with some people and they make you want to leave the Instagram for a while, you should know that you can make your account private, so any people you approved to be on your following list, can see your photos, videos or comments.
Also, Instagram gives you an optin to block someone, you just that particular person can not contact you any more, and also you can make some your followers unfollow you.
